Dear parents, guardians, and community members,
Over the past few years, our school has been the target of extensive vandalism. This includes significant damage the exterior windows, the little free library in front of the school, and unfortunately, a major piece of playground equipment on the senior side of the school. Due to the ongoing vandalism around this specific structure, the replacement costs, and safety concerns, the decision was made to remove the structure.
Playground equipment is not funded by the school division – schools need to seek donations, sponsorship, and grants to cover these costs. With nearly 500 students in our school community, the SCC has implemented an aggressive fundraising campaign to replace the structure with the goal of breaking ground in the fall of 2023. We need the community’s support to reach our goal. With three months of winter left, once the snow melts, snow forts will no longer be an option – our kids deserve a safe and enjoyable space to play.
The demand for play structures is high and the students’ wish list is small and achievable - they would love a glider, monkey bars/ climbing structure or an additional swing set. All donations, of any size, are welcome!
